Would you believe the WMD-inspired device you see above is actually a fully-functional computer? You'll find more after the jump.

"Temple of Nod"

Created by Edvuld, this Command & Conquer-inspired case mod features a 2.3-GHz AMD 2500+ processor, 1GB of Corsair 3200XL memory, Lite-On 3540A DVD-writer, 120GB SATA HDD, custom-molded case, and lots of LED lighting. [Source]

"24" Computer

Peter from Bit-Tech decided to create a PC case based on the popular TV show "24" -- resembling a weapon of mass destruction aka atomic bomb. Features include a large dot matrix LED display, water cooling, custom built double radiator, and a concealed DVD drive.
...the aim of this project was to build a completely custom-built computer case, out of stainless steel, that would look like the sort of atomic bomb that one sees in spy movies or on TV shows like 24. I tried not to base the design on any real or fictional bomb, but simply out of my imagination.

Ammo Case PC

Another Yoshi DeHerrera creation, this PC is actually built into a "7.62 mm, 200-round surplus ammunition case."
At first I wanted it to be a hard-core gaming rig, but a gaming PC needs to be full-size, so I decided to make it a portable file server instead. An ammo-can PC would be perfect for MP3-swapping parties

Skeleton Case Mod

This "Skeleton Case Mod" by Bryant Baker of Roswell, Georgia features an ASUS M2NPV-VM mainboard w/AMD 64 Athlon 3500+ Socket AM2 CPU, 1GB of DDR2-667 RAM, 300GB HDD, and lots of copper tubing.
This mod is made of bronze-brazed, hammer-beaten copper. The drives' support is a hammer-beaten and bronze-brazed silver-plated skull. The skull and face suspended from the spine that frame in the DVD writer and 300GB hard drive are made from silver-plated bowls purchased at a junk store. When the DVD writer or hard drive power up or go into "seek" mode, the skull face jiggles

Unidyne Case

This "Shure Model 55 Unidyne microphone"-inspired case mod features a VIA M10000 motherboard w/1-GHz Nehemiah-core CPU, 512MB of memory, and a 40GB HDD. More information here.
These components are combined with a modified PCI slot exhaust fan and formed into a cartridge-styled unit that is separate and independent from the case. The cables are bound into a single unit to simulate a microphone cable. The computer took approximately six weeks to complete

Bender

Created by Bizardo, this Bender case mod took over 4 months and $1000+ to build.
It works fine, i use it for watching DVD movies playing music and for LAN parties. well i hate boring square grey computercases, and i have always been a big Futurama fan, so i desided to build Bender

Pumpkin

File this under: "Strange Computer Setups". A modder managed to cram a fully-functional PC inside this pumpkin. It features a 1.6-GHz Intel Penium M processor, 512MB of DDR2 memory, a DVD/RW drive, and lots of LED lighting. Instructions here.
The pumpkin modification started by hollowing out and drying the squash for the night. The next day, fans were stuck into the eyes with the grills screwed directly into the flesh. A Latitude D410 motherboard was then attached to a clipboard and shoved into the "case"
